For three generations, Mezcal Villasuso has been crafting fine, authentic mezcal for everyone to enjoy. Don Villasuso was already a master distiller when he founded his mezcal distillery in 1950. In 70 years, they have not changed a thing. The award-winning Mezcal Villasuso is just as delicious today as it was when they first opened their doors.

Mezcal Villasuso is now in the hands of its third Maestro Mezcalero, Pedro. With a time tested recipe and Agave Salmiana from San Felipe, Pedro masterfully distills Mezcal Villasuso. Not only is this authentic Mexican Mezcal, but every drop contains unadulterated Mexican terroir. And they achieve that in an unquestionably unique way.

Unlike most, the Agave Salmiana in Mezcal Villasuso is not cooked with firewood. Rather, it’s steam-cooked. The singular cooking process retains the agave’s true flavors. Those flavors find their way into every bottle of Mezcal Villasuso. Sweet, fruity and spicy, it’s an unforgettably enjoyable sip of pure Mexican terroir.

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 oz. Mezcal
  • 2 oz. Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • Lime Wedges for lining the rim and garnish
  • Spicy Rim: Tajin Clasico Seasoning or a Mix of 2 Parts Kosher Salt and 1 Part Chili Powder

  • Optional: 1 to 3 Teaspoons Orange Liqueur, Simple Syrup or Agave Nectar
Directions:
To prepare your glasses: Pour some Tajín (or mix your salt/chili powder) on a small, rimmed plate. Run a wedge of lime around the top of each glass. Dip the top of the glass into the salt blend at a 45-degree angle and roll it from side to side to catch the salt. Add ice cubes to your glass and set it aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the mezcal, orange juice, lime juice, orange bitters (if using) and optional sweetener. Securely fasten the lid and shake well. Pour the mixture into your prepared glass and garnish with a lime wedge. Enjoy!
